With Java, you shouldn't normally have to specify the memory size like 
that.  The JVM, icedtea in this case, will consume more memory than it 
needs, yes, but it plays nice, I think, and should give back RAM.  At 
least that's my understanding.

If you're comfortable with the CLI, as you seem to be, there's a CLI sudoku 
game available through apt-get, just so you know.  I'm no good at it, but 
it seems fine in terms of game play.
